Physical Therapy in Plaistow for Hand
Welcome to Pinnacle Physical Therapy's patient resource about Swan Neck Deformity of the Finger.
Normal finger position and movement occur from the balanced actions of many important structures. Ligaments support the finger joints. Muscles hold and move the fingers. Tendons help control the fine motion of each finger joint. Disease or injury can disturb the balance in these structures, altering normal finger alignment and function. The result may be a crooked finger, such as a swan neck deformity of the finger.
This guide will help you understand:
- what parts of the finger are affected
- what causes swan neck deformity
- how the problem is treated
- what to expect from treatment
